Innovative approaches to plastic waste recycling using the example of the textile industry

Keywords: plastic waste recycling, innovative technologies, textile production.

Abstract

Nowadays, pollution problem is very acute all over the world. Significant reduction of negative impact of pollutants on humans and the environment, as well as the improvement of a number of environmental and economic indicators can be ensured by the achievement by the countries of a proper level of development in the waste recycling issue. Within the framework of this article, the problems of plastic waste processing and the introduction of innovative solutions for their disposal and recycling are considered. The research aims to study the innovative ways of plastic waste recycling and assess the feasibility of their use in the textile industry. In the course of the study, the experience of introducing innovative environmentally-oriented technologies for plastic waste recycling was studied, the main approaches and strategies for introducing environmental innovations, as well as priority areas of environmentally oriented innovations in production, were considered. The main result of the study includes reasonable proposals for the implementation of plastic waste recycling technology in the production of textiles.
